Sheikh Zayed Bridge, Abu Dhabi.

Abu Dhabi’s Department of Transport (DoT) and the emirate’s Integrated Transport Centre (ITC) announced that toll gates would be launched on Sheikh Zayed, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed, Al Maqtaa, and Mussafah Bridges in Abu Dhabi from 15 October, 2019, with the project to be carried out in line with the Surface Transport Master Plan (STMP) for the UAE’s capital.

The toll gates will help reduce bottlenecks on Abu Dhabi roads by encouraging people to use the emirate’s public transport or carpooling services.

During a press conference announcing the launch of the system, DoT and ITC said that electric vehicles would be exempted from paying tolls charges for two years from the date of launch of the system. 

The toll gate system has been introduced in accordance with Law No. (17) of 2017 on road tolls in Abu Dhabi.

Toll fees between 7am and 9am and 5pm and 7pm will be $1 (AED4) for each time a vehicle passes through the gates on Saturday-Thursday.

Fees for the remaining hours on Saturday-Thursday, as well as on Fridays and public holidays, the fee will be $0.5 (AED2).

According to DoT, the amount due will be deducted from a prepaid user account through the Integrated Electronic Payment wallet, which automatically identifies the plate number eliminating the need for users to stick a tag on the windshield.
